Coregasms, Sthenolagnia and Sport: Lovehoney's Week in Sex News (Sexercise Special)
Your breath coming in short gasps, sweat running over your bare skin, your heart beating out of your chest as you urge yourself to go faster and faster...
Yep, this week we’ve been thinking about exercise (hey, what were YOU thinking of?). What with the Olympics and Paralympics done and dusted, here at the Lovehoney HQ we sense that the passion for fitness has died down somewhat.
Introducing, the Sexolympics! It may not have corporate sponsorship, a big venue in London or thousands of world class athletes, but it can be done from the comfort of your own home. So limber up and do your stretches, your training regime is about the begin.
This week we’ve been researching the link between fitness and sex to bring you the ultimate incentives to step your sex life up a gear. After all, burning 300 calories has never been more fun - and you don’t even need trainers.
- Women's Health explore the phenomenon of the "Coregasm" - achieving an orgasm during your workout. Surely a lie to boost gym memberships, right? Not according to sex therapist Dr. Victoria Zdrok. She explains "when a woman exercises, the release of endorphins and dopamine, which are necessary for orgasm, combined with the tension in the abs and lower extremities, can cause clitoral stimulation." Find out how to have your first coregasm - now there's an incentive to go to the gym tomorrow!
- This week on the forums we've been discussing the effect of exercise on the libido. Join the discussion with your thoughts and help us figure out exactly how much energy is burnt during a bedroom marathon.
- If the gym isn't your style, why not keep your workout based in the bedroom? Check out the list of sex positions that double as exercise. If you're interested in finding out just how much of a workout you're getting, why not invest in a Sex Calorie Counter or a Sex Counter Cock Ring.
- Our word of the week this Sunday is "Sthenolagnia" - one of our favourite fetishes yet! Sthenolagnia is defined as "sexual arousal from demonstration of strength or muscles" and has been around since the 1800s! It can apply to muscley men and women. Do you find bodybuilders a turn on?
Wait! That's not everything
